Scarcliffe Primary School

Strive to Shine

At Scarcliffe Primary School, we value the views of our pupils.  One way in which we gather their views and ideas is by having a school council.  The president and vice president were voted for by the pupils in a democratic voting system.  They then advertised the roles that were available in school and interviews took place to get the right people for each role.


Meet our School Councillors:

Democratic Vote:

In order to choose our School Council President and Vice President, we held and election in school.  All candidates had a week to put a campaign together and delivered speeches to the rest of the children in a special assembly.  

After counting the votes, we found out that Madison and Kai were chosen for the roles.  

Following the vote, it was time to advertise for the roles we needed filling.  

Madison and Kai then interviewed the candidates based on their application forms and appointed the new school council.

School Charity:

Every year we set ourselves the target to raise  money for school and charities.  In recent years, we managed to raise a staggering £1214.69 for Ashgate Hospice and over £1000 for Macmillan Cancer Support!  Well done to the children who organised the events and the school community for their support.  


Children in Need:

Soon we will be taking part in Children in Need day.  Annabel and Jesse will have the job to make the day fun and memorable while making money for the charity. 


Progress made this year:


The school council met with the old school council so they could share where they are up to with certain projects and to share some top tips.
